Anybody Going to See "The Who"?
 
I can't believe it - Roger Waters, Elton John, and The Who (well, Pete and Roger) all in one year! I may have to go see Pete and Roger twice. I don't think once will be enough. I'm going to the December concert in Nashville. I may have to add Atlanta in November if hubby is game....Hmmm...:scratchin

I can't wait! :yay:

I am! I'm going to the Nashville show, too. I'm really looking forward to it!

Cool! I'll be the one with a big smile waving a Union Jack. ;)

Have fun! :thumbsup2

I won tickets from the radio!

Haven't seen them since about '86 or '87. I'm sure they'll be good, but it's not the same without Entwistle (much less without Keith). They're performing the complete Quadrophenia, correct? Enjoy the show!

I won tickets from our Local radio station for the Dec 8th show in Philly. I can't wait. We can't afford to do concerts so I haven't been to one in many many years...very excited.

Yup, I will be there at Madison Square Garden in December -- with my brother, my cousin, my boyfriend, his cousin, his cousin's girlfriend, and his cousin's parents (whew!). I can't wait, it's going to be so awesome. This will be my 3rd time. Last time was during the previous Quadrophenia tour in 96. My favorite album of all time -- no way I'd miss this!

No current plans to see The Twho, but I've seen them 8 times. First two times Keith was still with us. I almost was at the infamous Cincinnati Riverfront Coliseum show. That's where I first saw them in '75.

My cousins were there, and I was at their house. They were very shaken up after the show and didn't know the extent of what happened until they saw it on the news.

Yes hubby and I are going to the Amway in Orlando!! So excited! We also going to see Santana this month in Tampa. :thumbsup2

Brought this thread back because I bought tickets this morning for Detroit November 24! There was a show about the making of Quadrophenia on TV last night so I looked up the tour info. We got second row center section seats...the Platinum VIP Experience with open bar pre-party et al. This will be our Christmas presents this year.

Quadrophenia is my favorite album of all time.

We're going to see them in Greensboro next week. We saw them a couple of years ago (may be more than 10) and had 3rd row seats. :cool1:

We saw Roger Waters this summer too!

OP-- if you can make it to Greensboro we have an extra ticket! We bought one for DD but she has to work for a school project.

Wow, what a thrill that will be. Have you read Pete Townshend's bio? I read some excerpts in Rolling Stone. Eye-opening to say the least.:)

Listen to the opening band, Vintage Trouble -- it's one of DS20's favorites.
